will finish out including california. alaska will round everything out at 1:00 a.m. you can see that handy little chart there. here's another chart that gives you a sense of the official nbc projections tonight. 270 electoral college votes are needed to win and, yes, it is not the popular vote that matters. it is the lector are ral college vote that matters. 237, this is what nbc is proceed correcting currently for bal. you can see on the map the states blue are those expected to give all of their votes to him. romney we're projecting 206 votes. in yellow, these are the key swing states. nbc sees eight of them for the time being and the most important one probably to watch is, yes, ohio. right here. not far from virginia which is probe the second most important. maybe colorado over here, the third. but in ohio, it really comes down to the interior of the country where many of these counties have gone boy way or the other. no republican presidential candidate has won without ohio, but it's not just tradition that matters, it's also the math. ohio's delegates will matter to the actual tally
. as republicans, we look at the state of california. why do we have to leave 55 electoral votes up for grabs, or actually give up 55 electoral votes and not contest them at all. same thing with new york. that's a ton of electoral votes that wer n're not contesting ri now. what we needed to do as a party is concentrate on the economic and national security issues and move away from the social issues. >> penny, what we haven't done in this election is really square out what kind of america the population wants. in terms of -- at the moment, we're going for big government and small taxation and that doesn't work. how are we going to square it? >> exactly. and that's where the balance needs to be. and i agree with boris this is where the president really is going to have to step forward and really put down the agenda. what it looks like, and really be the person that starts to negotiate in a much more up front or much more out-front area as far as on the fiscal path. you know, the senate that was just elected is probably more diverse. you actually have more conservatives and more liberals now in
is up, then we're over. let's start with chang in california. >> caller: hey, bag booyah to you. >> thank you for calling, sir. >> caller: i have a question about ic pharmaceutical. crazy fast few days. you look at from now. >> down a lot. the type of thing -- look, you are buying a spec with icis. you take a look, dynavac technologies. we like the hepatitis vaccine. the government didn't like that. i think this is a curious overreaction. but it's a spec. you have to be careful. >>> let's go to dan in texas. >> caller: pch energy. >> down 16. mostly natural gas in ohio. if you watched the show, we told you it's mostly natural gas in ohio. i have been buying southwest, swn. why have i been buying southwestern energy? it's the pure nat gas play i want. i think it's going higher in 2013. >>> bill in south dakota. bill. >> caller: jim, my stock is american capital agency corp, agnc. there one is going to go down. why? maybe companies real estate investment trusts are worried about the taxation considerations, and we also have to worry about what the yield curve looks like and what t
over the country as far as canada and california. i think we ought to really compliment the utilities for the job they're doing. >> believe me, i'm not criticizing the men, the workers, the women. i'm not criticizing that. i'm not even criticizing you. i'm criticizing this crazy system. michelle and i talked about this last evening. get these bottlenecks, you get the national emergencies, and in comes the infrastructure problem and you ask yourself doctor. and today a lot of angry new yorkers are asking themselves why.doctor. and today a lot of angry new yorkers are asking themselves why. >> the second night in a row where you for example say we should compliment the utility industry. our issue isn't with the industry. it's with the politicians who don't allow prices to go to places that would improve infrastructure and when everything fails, they blame the utilities. so it becomes a pumping bag when in fact you're probably not necessarily the problem. >> it's not a small price tag. you're talking about between $500 billion to $600 billion to bring it up to modern standards with digit
in southern california, the markets are even tighter than that. you add it up and it's pretty clear, things are going to start moving forward, or better said, they're going to continue to move forward from the gains we've seen over the course of the last six months or so. >> so, david, how would you -- how would you describe the market, then? has it become now the issue of getting a mortgage that seems to be one of the sticking points, or is it still a lot of supply on the market? because even though a lot of people feel we've seen the worse, we're just bumping along the bottom with housing. what is it going to take to get this needle moving? >> it's both. supply and mortgage products. we've had some of the most prestriktive products we've had in years. it's relative. it's really returning back to where it was as far as mortgage products were concerned. we're turning back to the products we used to have when we had a healthy economy but we don't have products that really fuel the excess growth. a lot of people feel we need that, given the inventory that's out there. i agree with chris. i do
unemployment relative to the rest of the country, new york, new jersey, come here to this side here, california, going up even as other parts of the west goes somewhat higher than the rest of the nation, those are considered solidly blue. look here the middle of the country from oklahoma all the way to north dakota. virginia, low unemployment rate, 3 to 5%, that puts it in play the next thing is the change in unemployment, again, not much change here, what are considered mostly democratic states. only here when you look at north carolina and florida, those states are considered to be in play and ohio as well, of course, when you have a positive change and potentially those are swing states. tyler? >> bottom line here, we are a little short on time, the unemployed are no more fundamentally likely to favor one candidate than another? >> that's exactly right. >> very close. >> thought would be a huge swing one way or the other. >> people blame obama or say well, romney might be a little tougher on -- >> whichever way this goes, tyler, i think there's going to be a lot of monday morning quarterback
. in higher third of unemployment. what else is dark? california is dark. these are safe democratic states. where is unemployment low? from north dakota down to oklahoma none of that is going for obama. only one place perhaps. virginia is a potential swing state and also wisconsin. maybe that low rate is a precondition for obama to potentially win it. let's look at the change. again, very similar. darker is less change. less improving unemployment. new york, not a good state for change of unemployment over the last year but probably safely in the obama camp. the one place you might want to look here, nevada, florida, north carolina and virginia. those are all potentially in play because they had some improvement in the unemployment rate and if that had not been there, they might have been for romney. i would like to give you a definitive answer. you have the level of unemployment and you have the change. that's what makes this a horse race, simon. >> it's fascinating to see that the way you slice and dice going into the election whether it's turnout or amazing. steve, thank you very much.
leans to the left a little? >> he's no longer here. >> he's there in presence. you're in california. is there any businesses left at all in that state? >> there are quite a few. go to silicon valley, los angeles, san francisco. this is still the engine of innovation for the u.s. economy. >> they're making it tough on you. >> we could be doing better, that's true. >> so neel, when you say that this does lift some immediate uncertainty but you're not sure what it means beyond that, what do you think the market does between now and the end of the year, let's say? maybe not this week but between now and the end of the year under a reelected president obama or under a newly elected mitt romney? >> well, i think under reelected president obama, i would expect to see volatility increase especially as it relates around the fiscal cliff. we need to see them come together, divided government needs to work together. they have not worked together very well over the past couple years so the markets will take a wait and see approach and there's a good chance there will be fighting and brinkmanshi
as far west as fresno, california, will be sending in another 400 people later today. we would anticipate probably having upwards of 3,000 people on the ground within the next four to five days. >> you've been doing this for a while. you were with the company since '84. i can't imagine the number of disasters you have helped coordinate the recovery for. seeing anything like this in your time? the confluence of population density, power, the snow? i mean we're talking a very large part of the country. >> this is a very extraordinary situation. the density that we're facing and the enormity of this storm and the geographic area it's covered, new jersey, new york, upward through canada. our canadian offices are also mobilized and working on losses. this is something out of the worried. we are encouraged though that every hour of every day we are seeing small signs of progress. and as has been report you see great acts of heroism being performed by people each and every step of the way. we've seen not only belfor people providing great services, but acts of kindness out to knows who need it s
companies. i see so many small businesses, i was out in california yesterday, i must have met in four days with eight of our companies, and i asked every one of them, what impact does this have? what difference is it going to make whether romney wins or obama? i honestly believe it's almost a neutral element in terms of the young companies. when they are growing and they are excited and their product is being taken up, and most of them that i'm dealing with are internet or wireless based, it's an environment you don't stop hiring. in fact they have big open to buys. >> so what does affect those companies? what are they looking at beyond their own home base? >> i think the general environment will have an impact. i think that the tone of the top will have an impact. i think my personal feeling, the biggest impact for the kind of companies i'm in are what happens for advertising expenditures. i think advertising and advertising -- >> you talked about immigration policy as well. >> sorry, thank you, thank you. immigration policy is getting the kind of people, everyone is frustrated with the i
